The Tank Museum’s Education Officer and Research Project Manager have teamed up with Salariya to create a children’s book launching exclusively during the Easter Holidays. The book features tanks that can only be found at The Tank Museum such as Little Willie, the Mark I and Sherman DD. Aimed at ages 7+, the book is filled with fun cartoons and facts to teach children about military history.
Get ready...World War Two is under way and you're being sent to the front line. You're about to learn about how challenging, uncomfortable and dangerous it can be serving in a tank!
"You Wouldn't Want To Be" is a constantly-growing library of exciting titles which transport the reader to the grisliest times and places in history. The first-person narrative approach puts the reader in the shoes of some of the most unfortunate people ever to have lived. Humorous cartoon-style illustrations bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events.
My grandson is learning about WWII at KS2. This book has the perfect balance of imparting information whilst remaining accessible and fun. Even his Year 5 teacher found it an interesting and useful book when he took it to school to show it off.
We are already looking at the other "You Wouldn't Want to..." books, especially the WWII series.
My grandson loves this book, he’s 8 and it’s perfect for him,older children would also be very interested in it as would adults. It’s got lots of information in it. Definitely recommend
